    Wheel size Limitations

    I think I know the answer to this but I want confirmation. I have a 26 x 1.75
    tire. Am I limited only to that size with the current rims I have - the 1.75?

    2008 Novara Randonee - love it. Would have more bikes if I had time to ride them all. Previous bikes: 1968 Motobecane Mirage, 1972 Moto Grand Jubilee (my fav), Jackson Rake 16, 1983 C'dale ST500.

    Of course not, but what you can safely use depends on the rim width. Check out http://www.sheldonbrown.com/tire_sizing.html

    It's pretty much a trial fit process.

    Sheldon's website will tell you if the tire will fit onto the rim, but that doesn't mean that it will fit onto the bike.
